Those who rule and their supporters are disconnected from the people. They mock and ridicule those who disagree with them. It’s not healthy. I am fundamentally libertarian in my outlook and long ago realized that both major political parties are aligned against the people. This article from Professor Codevilla points this out and predicts the end of the Republican party. Perhaps I should start a Republican Part Irrelevancy Watch. No point in making one for the Democratic Party, which devolved long ago into a riot of idiot special interests united in their hatred of those that disagree with them.
